Awake Creator Kyle Killen Sells Pilot to ABC
Titled Influence, the “provocative workplace ensemble” drama centers on two brothers — one a bipolar genius well-versed in human psychology and the other a former con artist — who run an agency aiming to solve problems by using “the real science of human motivation and manipulation.”
Our sister site Deadline first reported the news.
Killen — who will pen and exec-produce Influence –most recently created NBC’s Awake, which, while a critical darling, lasted just one season. He also created Fox’s well-reviewed-but-ill-fated Lone Star the previous year.
